EGR tuned off / wastegate question

I am running the Spartan 250 tune which turns off the EGR, does this also tune out the turbo using the EGR as a wastegate?

I want to do an EGR delete but I am considering the delete with wastegate.. what are your guys thoughts? is it necessary? Anyone have any problems with an EGR delete running a 250 tune?? Thanks

I don't run spartan but as long as you have a egr delete tune go for it. Otherwise call the guys at spartan and I'm sure they fix up your tuning for whatever you want to do....

Wastegate is not needed unless you throwing big sticks in your truck and a bigger turbo btw...with a stock pump and injectors you won't need a wastegate, just a delete would be fine...

You don't need a wastegate unless you swap turbos or start throwing big boost/volume at this engine. You're not going to do that with factory turbos and a tuner as far as I know.

So, in other words, just get an EGR delete and don't worry about the wastegate.

I have stock exhaust tip on mine. I don't like the look of a single pipe coming out one side and I also don't want to spend money on going duals.

Makes it more of a sleeper. Ha!

re: exhaust tips..

mine is vanilla as can be.. I've been searching for a tip that looks like stock but will fit a 4", but can't seem to locate one.. I don't want to cut the one off the stock exhaust I've kept in the garage..

there is going to come a day, I fear, that your local HP will be briefed on what to look for, and all of us with aftermarket tips will be nailed..
